I am working with one of the UK's strongest digital agencies who have a client list that is extremely enviable. Due to continued growth and client engagement they are looking to hire a Scrum Master on a permanent basis.

You will be the key, client facing member of the team ensuring the successful delivery of technical projects using Scrum.

As a Scrum Master, you will be responsible for all Agile aspects of the team including facilitation of Scrum Ceremonies, Impediment Resolution, tracking and reporting the release plan, reporting metrics and handling team communication. This is a role that requires excellent client facing people skills, someone with the ability to manage and influence not just internal but also external stakeholders in the adoption and adherence to Scrum principals.
